If you follow me on Social Media.. you might have noticed that I have been absent. I am SO sorry to those that expect to see me everyday.. however, I really needed a BREAK. You see, I hate to admit this.. but a lot of the time I was neglecting my house, my family and was stuck trying to finish scrolling through facebook or catching up on periscope recordings… I don’t know if you notice but social media is a time.sucker.
With the Black Friday and Cyber Monday season coming up.. I wanted to take a break before I go full force into posting deals for those of you who love online shopping as much as ME! 🙂
So, a couple of weeks ago.. I decided to stop. Cold Turkey. I give myself just 30 minutes a day to schedule posts to my two facebook groups through a awesome tool called Edgar. I stopped Instagram, periscoping (To everyone that follows me here, I WILL be back!) and even stopped seeing my Facebook newsfeed thanks to a new Chrome Extension called Kill Newsfeed.
I LOVE this because I can’t be distracted while working and get stuck in the abyss of scrolling through Facebook 😉
So what happens when you quit social media?
- Your house stays clean 😉
- You aren’t so dependent on your phone.
- You enjoy your family more.
- You pay ATTENTION to everything else.
… and you are just SO much more happy!
I personally had to stop Instagram because It was clouded with people selling coupons or talking about the latest glitch.. which honestly, got to be too much for me. It makes me sad to see people taking advantage of the one thing that got me through the hard times of living on one income.. (coupons).. and thinking that it is okay to take advantage of store pricing mistakes.
What have you done to limit your social media time?
